It's funny how the people that are either a) pissed at Silva for his last couple of fights or b) don't consider him the best p4p fighter in the world are picking him to lose.

Forrest is tailor made for someone like Silva to pick apart.

I'm going AS by TKO....seems Forrest always gets tagged in his fights and AS I think will catch him eventually and then keep 'em coming for a TKO. Looking forward to watching the fight either way though.

Gonna give it to Andy
I dont think he gave a shit about fighting Thales and Cote, who were borderline top 10's.

Now he is fighting a top 3-4 LHW, and we all know how stacked LHW is.
I love both these guys, but i think Anderson straight punches will be the down fall for Forrest

Use logic when you make a statement. Anderson hasn't fought anyone like Forrest in a LONG ASS TIME. he will have an extremely hard time counter punching with someone liek Forrest who is a pretty elusive guy who is well versed in all aspects of the game.

Forrest is going to give Anderson fits because his reach won't be as useful as it has been and he won't charge Silva like Leben or Franklin. Forrest is an extremely effective gameplanner and will have a good strategy for this fight. Im not saying he going to win but he won't simply be picked apart either.

It will be the most competitive fight Silva has ever had in the UFC if you ask me. The only other guy I think that is up to the task is Nate Mardquardt. Silva has a certain stigma about him that seems to be in fighters minds and I dont think anyone has gotten past that but we all know it doesnt matter to Forrest as he has overcome this kind of adversity several times before.

I just dont know how you can say he made to be picked apart by Anderson when he hasn't fought anyone like Forrest in so long. The last person who took a gameplan similar to what Forrest will most liekly bring to the table was Chonan who was just outworking Silva for the duration of the fight.

By the way i have nothing against Anderson and I dont think he is P4P king (that goes to Fedor IMO) but im actually leaning towards Forrest in this fight because of the certain challenge he presents to Silva. Though it's deffinitly Anderson's fight to win if he really wants to.

One lackluster performance by Silva that went to decision is hardly going to lead the majority of well informed people to believe that if Silva wins it will be by decison.

Anderson almost ALWAYS finishes the fight and I think if he win's against Forrest he will be finishing it aswell. It's only logical. You just be a rebel and stick with that decision but don't call out people you know nothing about based on a percentage at the top of a screen (By the way im picking Griffin)
